career counselling isabelle truongDo you feel stuck in your career? Are you unhappy at work?  Are you unsure about which direction to follow? …. then career counselling can help you find the answers already within you, just waiting for you to realise them so you can live an authentic and satisfying life.

In the last three decades, the nature of employment has changed considerably. We now live in a world full of uncertainty and change as a result of globalisation, downsizing, advancing technology, and increased diversity, with women and minorities  entering the work force.  People can no longer depend on permanent employment with one company, or even following one career path, throughout their working lives.

You now need to self-manage your career by developing positive psychological attitudes such as flexibility, tolerance  for ambiguity, resilience, proactivity, and openness applicable to the work environment.  Emotional intelligence competencies are required more than ever to achieve success in the workplace. Career development is now viewed as multi-directional and multi-levelled, and nowadays encompasses the individual, the environment, interaction and change.

I will work closely with you to address your “life-career development”. I take a holistic approach by attending to both your career and personal-emotional issues. We will examine other aspects of your  life such as: the roles of (job, employee, parent, community member); the setting (home, work, school); life events (first job, marriage, illness, and retirement)  and take them into consideration as these are intertwined and impact one another.

There are many career options, with a positive attitude and an understanding of your needs, you will find a right job.
